Prague at nightPrague at nightPrague at night

The Charles bridge with the Prague Castle in the background. Not bad ehh!!
Neetz's and my attitude of 'booking is for overly organised, boring people' ended in Prague. We arrived about 5pm on a Friday night hoping to stay the weekend at a hostel of our choosing without any reservation. That was a bad idea, a very bad idea. After finally finding a place that was happy to have us only for the first night I left the hostel and Neetz in search of accomodation for Saturday and Sunday night. About 2 hours later and many kilometers of walking and numerous phone calls I finally found a spot only 1 block from where we were staying.

The rest of our stay was fantastic. Besides Tezz getting asked if he wanted some sex and/or drugs (he said no thanks he's good), we explored most of what Prague has on offer. Friday night was cocktails (needed after running around), Saturday was spent walking up to the Castle, over the Bridge and shopping (not for Neetz for Tezz - he bought jeans since the last ones turned into shorts that looked like he'd got them from a homeless guy (We are homeless and most of the day was spent looking for shoes for Neetz but

after trying on every shoe in Prague none were good - Tezz). What can I say...the slipper didn't fit! Sunday was spent sleeping in, going up the Clock Tower, and walking around at night since Prague is magically lit up at night. Although Prague is fairly small you could spend heaps of time there, unfortunately we had to move on to Berlin.
